Have they fired Boylen yet? He has had his chance and he has failed. Period.
There has been regression, rather than progress, in the program during his
tenure. If he is retained, this Ute fan will be looking for a new team to
"A nice end to what's been a difficult season" will be when they
announce that Chris Hill has fired Jim Boylen.
I rarely come to Ute stories but had to see Riley's rose colored glasses take.
However, from the first time I saw the Utes I thought they had
possibilities. They should NEVER have the bad record they have (yes, coaching).
Should the players figure out there are other players on the court, share the
ball, stop sloppy streaks and get Foster involved, it wouldn't surprise me to
see the Utes pull the upset. Hope they do. My Ute friends need
something to cheer for. 2011 could be a very ugly year in SLC.
Make the game close, keep Boylen around until his contract is up and move on to
the conference of champions with losing season after losing season. Now that's a
plan! Basketball has become, "Utah who?"
The sooner the end comes the better.
I think Riley is a great play by play caller for the Utes. But he is obviously
paid to say nice things, and having this positive attitude about the worst coach
in the history of the University of Utah is admirable, but really just down
right silly. Finally after four awful years, tonight is the end of what has been
the biggest joke job of perceived coaching. Hallejuah it is here, and that press
conference better be first thing Friday morning. Don't let the door hit you on
the way out to Michigan, you and your u, us, and muss are done! It's a good day
to be a Ute!
Riley, you're such an optimist. The Utes stand NO chance of winning. With poor
to nonexistent coaching and strategy and kids that can't shoot and can't pass,
it is going to be ugly. Get this season over with and get rid of Boylen.
T-mac: Rright on!
There's no way the Utes win. Lets just get the "L" over with so Hill
can fire Boylen and we can move the program along to it's next, and hopefully
better, phase. For Ute fans my age who have been spoiled with much basketball
success... suffering through the last two coaching regimes has been painful.
